THE SNAKE

Johnny Rivers

On her way to work one morning
Down a path alongside the lake
A tender-hearted woman
Saw a poor half-frozen snake
His pretty coloured skin had been
All frosted with the dew
"Oh faith" she cried. "I'll take you in
And I'll take care of you."
"Take me in, tender woman.
Take me in, for Heaven's sake.
Take me in, tender woman,"
Sighed the snake

Now she wrapped him up all cosy
In a comforter of silk
And then laid him by the fireside
With some honey and some milk
She hurried home from work that night
As soon as she arrived
She found that pretty snake she'd
Taken in had been revived
"Take me in, tender woman.
Take me in, for Heaven's sake.
Take me in, tender woman."
Sighed the snake

She clutched him to her bosom
"You're so beautiful," she cried
"But if I hadn't brought you in
By now you might have died."
Well she stroked his pretty skin again
And then kissed and held him tight
But, instead of saying "Thanks"
The snake gave her a vicious bite
"Take me in, tender woman.
Take me in, for Heaven's sake.
Take me in, tender woman."
Sighed the snake

"I saved you," cried that woman
"And you've bitten me, but why?
You know your bite is poisonous
And now I'm gonna die!"
"Hah, shut up, silly woman,"
Said that reptile, with a grin
"You knew darned well I was a snake,
Before you took me in."

"Aw, take me in, tender woman.
Take me in, for Heaven's sake.
Take me in, tender woman."
Sighed the snake
Sighed the snake
Sighed the snake
"Aw, you better take me in, tender woman,"
Sighed the snake
